  2. 2. THE SPECIFICATIONS AND INFORMATION REGARDING THE PRODUCTS IN THIS MANUAL ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE. ALL STATEMENTS, INFORMATION, AND RECOMMENDATIONS IN THIS MANUAL ARE BELIEVED TO BE ACCURATE BUT ARE PRESENTED WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. USERS MUST TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR APPLICATION OF ANY PRODUCTS. THE SOFTWARE LICENSE AND LIMITED WARRANTY FOR THE ACCOMPANYING PRODUCT ARE SET FORTH IN THE INFORMATION PACKET THAT SHIPPED WITH THE PRODUCT AND ARE INCORPORATED HEREIN BY THIS REFERENCE. IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO LOCATE THE SOFTWARE LICENSE OR LIMITED WARRANTY, CONTACT YOUR CISCO REPRESENTATIVE FOR A COPY. The following information is for FCC compliance of Class A devices: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio-frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in which case users will be required to correct the interference at their own expense. The following information is for FCC compliance of Class B devices: The equipment described in this manual generates and may radiate radio-frequency energy. If it is not installed in accordance with Cisco’s installation instructions, it may cause interference with radio and television reception. This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device in accordance with the specifications in part 15 of the FCC rules. These specifications are designed to provide reasonable protection against such interference in a residential installation. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. Modifying the equipment without Cisco’s written authorization may result in the equipment no longer complying with FCC requirements for Class A or Class B digital devices. In that event, your right to use the equipment may be limited by FCC regulations, and you may be required to correct any interference to radio or television communications at your own expense. You can determine whether your equipment is causing interference by turning it off. If the interference stops, it was probably caused by the Cisco equipment or one of its peripheral devices. If the equipment causes interference to radio or television reception, try to correct the interference by using one or more of the following measures: • Turn the television or radio antenna until the interference stops. • Move the equipment to one side or the other of the television or radio. • Move the equipment farther away from the television or radio. • Plug the equipment into an outlet that is on a different circuit from the television or radio. (That is, make certain the equipment and the television or radio are on circuits controlled by different circuit breakers or fuses.) Modifications to this product not authorized by Cisco Systems, Inc. could void the FCC approval and negate your authority to operate the product. The Cisco implementation of TCP header compression is an adaptation of a program developed by the University of California, Berkeley (UCB) as part of UCB’s public domain version of the UNIX operating system.

  23. 23. Preface Obtaining Technical Assistance Opening a TAC Case Using the online TAC Case Open Tool is the fastest way to open P3 and P4 cases. (P3 and P4 cases are those in which your network is minimally impaired or for which you require product information.) After you describe your situation, the TAC Case Open Tool automatically recommends resources for an immediate solution. If your issue is not resolved using the recommended resources, your case will be assigned to a Cisco TAC engineer. The online TAC Case Open Tool is located at this URL: http://www.cisco.com/tac/caseopen For P1 or P2 cases (P1 and P2 cases are those in which your production network is down or severely degraded) or if you do not have Internet access, contact Cisco TAC by telephone. Cisco TAC engineers are assigned immediately to P1 and P2 cases to help keep your business operations running smoothly. To open a case by telephone, use one of the following numbers: Asia-Pacific: +61 2 8446 7411 (Australia: 1 800 805 227) EMEA: +32 2 704 55 55 USA: 1 800 553-2447 For a complete listing of Cisco TAC contacts, go to this URL: http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml TAC Case Priority Definitions To ensure that all cases are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established case priority definitions. Priority 1 (P1)—Your network is “down” or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation. Priority 2 (P2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your business operation are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation. Priority 3 (P3)—Operational performance of your network is impaired, but most business operations remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service to satisfactory levels. Cisco IP/TV 3400 Series Servers User Guide xxiv OL-4467-01

  29. 29. Chapter 1 Introducing IP/TV Servers Cisco IP/TV Broadcast Servers Cisco IP/TV Broadcast Servers Cisco IP/TV Broadcast Servers are equipped with IP/TV Server software. They deliver on-demand or scheduled rebroadcasts of IP/TV programs that include synchronized media produced with Web Presenter, ScreenCaster, and SlideCast. IP/TV Broadcast Servers are configured with video capture cards to encode streams from analog video and audio sources. They can receive content from analog sources such as video cameras, video cassette recorders (VCRs), satellite feeds, cable feeds, or existing Active Streaming Format (ASF), Audio Video Interleaved (AVI), or MPEG digital files. IP/TV Broadcast Servers can deliver live events, such as a chief executive officer’s speech to thousands of employees, while using the network bandwidth of an individual stream. IP/TV Broadcast Servers offer varying compression techniques, depending upon application requirements and available bandwidth. They are ideal for multicasting live events or prerecorded programs on a scheduled basis. This section describes the following Cisco IP/TV Broadcast Servers: • Cisco IP/TV 3425 and 3425A Broadcast Servers • Cisco IP/TV 3426 Broadcast Server • Cisco IP/TV 3427 Broadcast Servers Cisco IP/TV 3425 and 3425A Broadcast Servers Cisco IP/TV 3425 and 3425A Broadcast Servers support high-performance encoding, with all encoding done in hardware. They are configured with Optibase MovieMaker video capture cards. The Cisco IP/TV 3425 Broadcast Server captures real-time and prerecorded content and streams it over the network using television-quality MPEG-1 or broadcast-quality MPEG-2 compression techniques for the highest-quality streaming. The Cisco IP/TV 3425A Broadcast Server is identical to the IP/TV 3425 Broadcast Server, but encodes and delivers only television-quality MPEG-1 streams. Cisco IP/TV 3425 and 3425A Broadcast Servers are configured for AC-input power and have a single power supply installed. They have two 10/100BASE-T Ethernet/Fast Ethernet ports with RJ-45 receptacles. Port Ethernet 0 supports autodetect speed mode and full-duplex operation.
